Today I’d like to share a new favorite recipe, via the foodie community at Epicurious.  Quinoa cakes (or patties as the recipe refers to them) are delicious protein filled goodness that are super easy to make!  If you haven’t heard of quinoa (pronounced “kin-wa”), it’s a super grain that fluffs up like rice when you cook it.  It’s a great alternative to rice and pasta, and is packed with tons of nutrients.  I made a big batch Saturday night and had a ton left over, so I decided to whip up a batch of cakes with the extra.

Here are how mine turned out::
